Thomas Brennan Maloney, age 66, passed away suddenly while fulfilling his longtime dream of swimming across the San Francisco Bay. Tom is the beloved husband of 42 years to Ann Cusick Maloney, a devoted father to Patrick (Barbara) Maloney, Matthew Maloney, and Maggie (Arie Polycarpou) Maloney, and the adored Papa of Finn, Wally, and Tilly Maloney. Tom is preceded in death by his parents John Richard Maloney and Judith Ann Burtschi Maloney. He is survived by his sister Bridget Maloney-Krips (Will Krips), his Cusick family in-laws, seven nieces and nephews, a multitude of cousins from the Maloney, Clough, Rees, Burtschi, and Ruttle clans, along with countless friends from every stage of his life. He loved every one of them.
Tom was born on March 2,1955 in Cincinnati, Ohio to Dick and Judy. The young family eventually relocated to Los Altos, California, where Tom attended St. Simon Elementary and Bellarmine College Prep. He graduated from Wheeling College, Marshall University medical school, and completed his pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio in 1987. In 1989, he joined the pediatrics team at Group Health Associates in the Western Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati, happily taking the Anderson Ferry to and from work most days. At the office he planted gardens, fed birds, sang, told stories, treated his beloved patients, and ran late for appointments for over 30 years. He was truly dedicated to his patients, never rushing, and giving each family the time they needed. Each of them had his personal cell phone number.
Tom loved adventure, and some of his happiest times were spent outdoors and on trips with his family, especially trips to Ireland, Alaska, and Maine. He never met a stranger; he would strike up a conversation with someone waiting in line to check out at a store and leave with a new friend. He was a movie buff and could recall dialog lines from movies he had seen 30 years ago with ease – “Have you ever seen __movie?” was a regular conversation starter – there was a movie for every occasion.
Tom’s kindness, generosity of spirit, gentle nature, big laugh (with bigger sneezes), and innate goodness will be missed by all who knew him. He was one of a kind.
Visitation will be from 4 – 7 pm Friday 8/6 at Linnemann Funeral Home in Erlanger, KY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Blessed Sacrament Church in Fort Mitchell on Saturday 8/7 at 10:00am, with burial following at St. Mary Cemetery.
To honor Tom’s lifelong commitment to healthcare and prevent the spread of COVID-19, the family requests all attendees wear masks, which will be available at the funeral home and church.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to LaVerna Recovery Lodge for Men, Indianapolis or The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati.
The Mass will be live streamed at:
